Feminist Says Actress Kirsten Dunst Too ‘Dumb’ to Have an Opinion on Gender

“You need a man to be a man and a woman to be a woman. That’s how relationships work.”

Last week saw a feminist uproar over comments made by actress Kirsten Dunst in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar UK. Expressing her personal opinion that men and women have distinct roles within relationships, and that she prefers to live accordingly, Dunst provoked the ire of many proclaimed champions of woman’s rights. US Weekly reports:

The 31-year-old cover girl has a more traditional view when it comes to relationships between men and women.

“I feel like the feminine has been a little undervalued,” she told the magazine. “We all have to get our own jobs and make our own money, but staying at home, nurturing, being the mother, cooking – it’s a valuable thing my mom created.”

“Kirsten Dunst is not paid to write gender theory so it shouldn’t surprise anyone that she’s kind of dumb about it,” Jezebel writer Erin Gloria Ryan wrote.

Gender theory? All Dunst did was express her personal preference. Since when did personal preferences become subject to expert review?

An appeal to authority and ad hominem notwithstanding, Ryan’s response betrays the real objective of her so-called “feminism.” Rather than protect the right of each woman to pursue her individually conceived values, the Jezebel brand of feminism seeks to subjugate women under “gender theory,” whether they individually assent to it or not.

Dunst expressed what makes her happy. But “feminists” like Ryan don’t want women like Dunst to be happy. They’d rather drag their fellow women through a cultural inquisition, hoping to extract the false confession that a man’s love and provision prove somehow exploitative.

Gender Theory? Well, now let me see. You know, I don't have any idea what that means. ~ Red, Shawshank Redemption

From a Website called Jezebel, hey? That's perfect. Fit food for the wild dogs.

Anyone who is paid to write about "gender theory" is, by that very fact, disqualified from having an intelligent opinion on much anything.

Paid gender theorists like Ryan write that selfies are "literally just pictures of a woman's face not talking," as opposed to what - photos that actually talk?

Paid gender theorists goof on actor Paul Walker's death in a car accident by wishing on Twitter it had been GOP Scott Walker and then have to apologize and delete the Tweet.

Paid gender theorists lovingly call anyone with a legitimate opposite view "dumb" and wish death on them. I'm not surprised Ryan thinks the idea of "nurturing" is uncool - there's little enough sign of it in Ryan's own rhetoric.

The fact is that, when it comes to a moron like Ryan, everything's gender theory. It's not a profession - it's a pathological anti-societal obsession. Ryan's hate and bigotry is "dumb," not mere disagreement, unless you agree that to say being male is "Aggression? War? Rape?" put on 3.5 billion men is justified. That's gender theory: men are bad and women good, even the dumb ones. Gender theory is bigotry, and bigotry is never complicated.

Thoughts that conflict with the narrative must be dismissed, denigrated and othered. And so must the people that hold them. Because they're a threat.

'Gender Theory" is code word for "Lesbian make-work"....

A special grant of (usually government) employ reserved for those politically useful to a regime plotting the decay of a once proud nation that had little use for Politicians or Government...

Gender ANYTHING = lesbian, 95% of the time

Since when does getting paid to render an opinion make one smarter than someone giving their opinion for free? Standard MO for feminists and liberals to call everyone dumb whose opinion differs from theirs.

If non-expert Gwyneth Paltrow had uttered the opposite sentiment I'm sure Erin Gloria Ryan would have applauded instead of instructing her to defer to professional feminists.

If feminists would speak from the girl side and not so much from the angry male side they might actually make sense. Provoking this kind of hate towards other women is why they have never succeeded.

Feminists dont really hate women...they hate MEN because we succeed with the kind of women they WANT, but cant GET...., traditionally attractive, healthy minded, confident secure feminine women that a "feminist" (read: angry lesbian) can never be, or have as a partner.

They will, out of shear repressed bitterness, reflexively trash any “attractive woman" who ENJOYS her "male appeal", and speaks well of traditional role/relationships, because it cuts them out of contention. It rubs their face in the harsh reality of what is “normal” and what will most likely, always be denied to THEM.

They WANT a fresh faced cutie like Kirstin Dunst...they can only GET the likes of a Lena Dunham 99% of the time...and they seethe over it. Her speaking positively of male/female roles is just salt in the wound,…they wince and lash out at what they lust for, but cannot have.

You can bet If that monster Andrea Dwarkin were still alive, you can she'd hate/lust Sara Palin every bit as much as the Vargas Girls she was so (faux negative outrage) obsessed with.

It aint Rocket Science ya know.

When, you ask? Oh, please; it has always been in fashion to demonize heretics. Come on; you have orthodoxy if you also have non-believers.

"And sometimes, you need your knight in shining armour. I'm sorry. You need a man to be a man and a woman to be a woman. That's why relationships work…"

My guess is that this is the part of Dunst's quote to which she found objection. Funny that you left that part of the quote out of your article.

This is almost funny.

You point out the missing part as if it is obviously damning.

"How DARE any woman express a need for something as sexist, patriarchal, and oppressive as a knight in shining armor!

Oh, the evil! The horror of those words! No wonder Ryan rebuked such a wretched utterance! Of COURSE she was justified in doing so! And it's obvious to any normal person, so of COURSE Hudson had to hide the damning evidence!"


I'd laugh at you, but your kind are about as funny as a cancer cell.

The objection was in itself sexist, of course. Objecting to the concept of a knight in shining armour on the grounds that it's sexist assumes that it's impossible for a female knight to exist.

Ideologues have never been good with logic, however. Ideologues for any ideology, BTW.

They obviously don't watch Game of Thrones, although the female knight's armor is not all that shiney.....

It's the cutline for the photograph. Funny that you didn't read the whole thing.

It appears that Kirsten's Mother did a wonderful job and created a real woman who actually knows why we were created Men and Women.... and if the dolt Ms. Ryan will merely walk outside and look at nature she will be seeing the male and female of the species doing exactly what they are supposed to do. It makes no difference whether she is seeing dogs, cattle, horses or sheep, they are all doing exactly as nature intended and they, none of them are in the business of Gender Ethics....
We were put on earth to continue life, not to dictate to others on what they should be doing....
Maybe Ms. Ryan is a member of some group who believes they should be in charge of everyone else, but they are mistaken, for we all are free to pursue our own happiness in our life.... Even Kirsten Dunst....
